Who are you rooting for to win the World Series. I bet you can't guess who I want.

I guess it's obvious who I'm rooting for.  It's a lot less stressful being the underdog this time, which is nice.  And since we're playing the Mets, all the games will be in prime time, instead of 2:30 AM, which is where they usually put non-NY or LA teams.

I just wish they started the games at 7:10 like they do in the regular season. My schedule for the next two days.

Met game from 8:19 - about 12:19.
Get home and to bed at 1 AM
Wake up at 4:35 AM
Volunteer at WFUV 6AM - 6 PM
Met game 8:19 - 12:19
Home at 1 AM

Then a regular school day on Friday. I'll be totally asleep just like my class.

I suppose World Series is ambiguous now that they have things like the World Series of Poker....

Where's my option for 'anybody but the Cardinals'?

I mean, really, I don't care that much who wins otherwise, as long as it's not St Louis. True, if the Mets win the NLCS, I'll root for them in the WS, because at least they play the game properly, by which I mean their pitchers bat.

So I will root for the Mets against either AL team, and I will root for eitiher AL team against the Cardinals.

Did you have a bad experience with the Cardinals?
lawrence Back · 13 years, 8 months ago
I'm a Cubs fan. It's pretty much required by law that I hate the Cardinals.
Songbill Back · 13 years, 8 months ago
Okay, that makes sense.

I'm glad to see that my Tigers are in the lead . . . as far as voting goes. I don't see what the problem is, here:

If you live in NY, you'll either cheer for the Mets, or nobody, since the Yanks are out.

If you live anywhere else, you're glad that the Tigers beat the Yankees, so they're your team. It's not rocket science, people.

I've gotta say, as a New Yorker livin' in Boston, it's sometimes frightening how much of a religion Baseball is around here. Luckily, I'm a Mets fan. Poor Yoram is a Yankees fan. We try not to discuss it in public.
